5,000 families involved with naxals in Bangalore: Kharge

BANGALORE: Former Home Minister M. Mallikarjun Kharge (Congress) said in the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday that 5,000 families in Bangalore were involved in naxal activities.

Speaking on the serial blasts in Mumbai, he said terrorists from Andhra Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Goa and Mumbai and those from the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka had taken shelter in Bangalore.

Mr. Kharge said the police should be strengthened and its capabilities upgraded. Security should be increased on the coast. More policemen should be recruited and posted to the Bangalore Airport, he said.

He urged the Finance Department to allocate funds for providing modern vehicles and weapons to security personnel. Police stations in the State had hardly 40 constables each while the number was about 100 in Mumbai, he said.
